Apple Announces Apple TV+ Pricing and Release Date

Jason Momoa in "See"

Apple held its annual event this Tuesday and among the new iPhones and new iPads, they have also revealed key details about the company’s streaming service Apple TV+. Tim Cook, Apple’s CEO, took the stage and confirmed that the service will be released on November 1. He also presented the trailer for the service’s first show See starring Jason Momoa.

Cook also revealed the pricing for the service. A subscription will cost $4.99 per month, as opposed to a former prediction that talked about a $9.99 per month price tag. In addition, a free yearly subscription will be offered to anyone who’ll buy an Apple product, may it be an iPhone, an iPad, an Apple Watch or a Mac. New shows will be added monthly to the service.

With this low pricing and early release date – before Disney+ – Apple set itself as a force to be reckoned with in the streaming field, positioning itself as an attractive option against the other newcomer and older services such as Netflix or Amazon.

Apple also announced Apple Arcade – a gaming service which promises to take cellular gaming to the next level.
